I'm looking for the FOX dub done of Totoro from back in the 90s.
I need an English version as I want to give it to a small child but the Disney dub is awful and they've chopped loads of the story out.
Can you help me locate the Fox version?

Thanks

You may have already found it yourself, but this is the Region 1 release of the Fox dub made several years ago. You'll get a terrible video transfer for your trouble though. Probably not so bad that a small child would notice, but then a small child probably wouldn't notice a bad Disney dub either!

I'm not a huge fan of the Fanning kids, but I'm pretty sure Disney didn't take anything out of the movie. Ghibli have a very strict stance on foreign edits: If anything, the western versions get away with putting too much into the movies, especially pointless exposition. Perhaps the Fox version simply has extra dialogue that never appeared in the Japanese version in the first place?

Amazon Japan has them. I ordered one for myself, and recently got it in the mail.
It does indeed have the Fox dub. Around 70 bucks, but I knew that, since I was
getting directly from Amazon.co.jp, I was getting a legit copy.
